Bertuzzo and Kane take pole in Senkvice, Slovakia

08.09.2013: The sun came out in Senkvice, Slovakia, today for the final rounds of the MX3 and

The sun came out in Senkvice, Slovakia, today for the final rounds of the MX3 and WMX world championships.




In the MX3, Italian Pier Filippo Bertuzzo is looking to finish the season on a high, as he is the surprise winner of the MX3 qualifying heat race, while in the WMX HM Plant KTM UK’s Natalie Kane takes her first qualifying race victory of the year.


KTM GST Berlin Racing’s Christian Brockel launched his KTM out of the gate and took his first holeshot of the season. Chasing the German Brockel around turn one was Italian Pier Filippo Bertuzzo and Slovenian Matevz Irt.


Around three laps in Bertuzzo found a way around Brockel and ran away for his first ever MX3 qualifying race victory. As Bertuzzo proceeded to check out, Brockel and Irt engaged in a battle which saw them toss back and forth the second position.


While the duo Brockel and Irt held each other up with their intriguing game of cat and mouse, UFO Racing MX Team’s Klemen Gercar started to close in. Gercar, who has his first ever world title right in his sights, was doing his best to recover from a bad start but ever determined, the Slovenian picked off more than eight riders to finish an outstanding second.


After the red plate holder Klemen Gercar found a way through, Brockel put in some solid laps, taking the break he was looking for to seal the deal on third, two seconds ahead of Matevs Irt in fourth. Fifth place went to Hillinger KTM MX Racing Team’s Matthias Walkner after finding a way around Estonian Gert Krestinov on the last lap.


Coming out swinging in the sixth and final round of the WMX, HM Plant KTM UK’s Natalie Kane is looking eager to seal the deal on second place in the championship.


The Irish lady has given herself the best opportunity for good start tomorrow after having a good (second place) start and passing Rabbit Racing Kawasaki’s Stephanie Laier a few turns later, then going on to take her first pole position of the year.


Meanwhile Rabbit Racing Kawasaki’s Stephanie Laier put in one of her strongest rides yet to take second place, six seconds ahead of Meghan Rutledge in third. A further eleven seconds back French lady Justine Charroux put in a strong ride to take fourth ahead of the injured red plate holder Monster Energy Yamaha’s Chiara Fontanesi in fifth.


The Italian arrived in Slovakia with an injured ankle, so she will do her best tomorrow to ride two safe motos and win her second world title.
